A three-storey building in a Chinese city is possibly the world’s thinnest building, as at one end it is only 0.4 meters wide.

The 3-storey building at Xiongdan Road, Haikou, Hainan Island only covers an area of 20 square meters and has been there for 3 years.
The thinnest end of the building is only 0.4 meters wide, while the thickest end is only 3 meters.

The address on the house is No. 8 Shandan Houxincun.

A reporter from Nanguo Metropolis News wanted to interview the house owner, but by knocking on the door, a woman inside shouted, "You, bastard, you people just come here for troubles. Get F… off!"

The local infrastructure office explained that in 2007 the government expropriated most of the land from its owner, leaving only 20 square meters of redundant land. Then the land owner built this building on this small patch to protest.

Local residents are worried that the thin building may be blown over by typhoons as Hainan Island is famous for its frequent typhoons.
